I take for granted you have visited the Copenhagen Zoo and have seen how the area is and how the animals behave, if they look healthy and if they are taken good care of.
I am also sure you know all the rules and regulations according to EAZA and Danish laws about animal cruelty.
Brandon: a personal sense of good and evil?
That's a hoot, B, that an amoral dickhead like you would be talking about being able to discern good and evil.
You are an Amoral dickhead, not an ammoral dickhead.
For all the talk of bringing "civilization" to the Philippines, American commanders responded to the Filipino insurgency with the utmost brutality. Over the course of the next decade, and especially in the first few years of the conflict, it became commonplace for entire villages to be burned and whole populations to be imprisoned in concentration camps. No mercy was accorded to Filipino prisoner, a large number of whom were shot. This certainly was not in keeping with the spirit of "benevolent assimilation" proclaimed by President McKinley.
See, The Rape of the Philippines
US Use of Weapons of Mass Destruction
The indiscriminate use of bombs by the US, usually outside a declared war
situation, for wanton destruction, for no military objectives, whose
targets and victims are civilian populations, or what we now call
Korea & China (1950-53)
Guatemala (1954, 1960, 1967-69)
El Salvador (1980s)
Brandon: I have nothing to do with the suppression of insurgency in the Philippines.
That right there proves that you are an amoral dickhead, but you have provided many more examples over the years.

Brandon: Please give a little evidence that I have low intelligence. I have two degrees in physics and am working as a software engineer, not commonly signs of low intelligence, ... .
Two degrees in physics, that's very impressive, Brandon.
Perhaps you can explain how the USA was able to get 3 steel buildings designed to take a hit from a jet to fall, in a single day, into their footprints, when no other country has ever been able to complete this miracle before or since, not even with one building!
Seriously, I don't know enough about this specific case to state an opinion, but I know this sort of thing goes on with other animals in zoos all the time.
It was possibly an educational thing when they fed the lions in front of kids? The real world right in front of their eyes, rather than the disney cotton wool cosy world that is all nice and touchy feely, but innacurate.
Rats are fed to snakes, crickets to lizards, chicken beef and lamb to big cats. It just makes people uncomfortable when it is a giraffe. If they were on the serengeti, they would see newborn giraffes struggling for all their worth to get up immediately, otherwise the creatures of the night get it.
It would have been nice to see it farmed out somewhere else in the perfect world, but what would that have entailed? A solitary existence? Below par care?
I'm a bit split on this one.
